CHICAGO — As part of its continued commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I), Exelon named 20 companies to its 2018 D&I Honor Roll, which recognizes partners in banking, insurance, IT and professional services for their work to include women, minorities and other diverse groups in key roles on Exelon’s account teams. These honorees will attend Exelon’s Public Forum on Increasing Diversity in the Workplace hosted by Jack Thayer, Exelon’s senior executive vice president and Chief Transformation Officer, on August 1 to share best practices and success stories.
“Companies with a diverse workforce are stronger, more agile and more innovative because they convene experts with a wide variety of viewpoints and experience,” said Bridget Reidy, Exelon’s executive vice president of Corporate Operations. “The goal for our D&I Honor Roll is not only to encourage our business partners to drive performance by valuing the contributions of women and minorities, but also to create a forum to learn from one another.”
The following companies will be recognized during this year’s 2018 D&I Honor Roll conference on July 31 at the Frederick Douglass-Isaac Myers Maritime Park in Baltimore: Northern Trust, Citibank, Goldman Sachs, CIBC, Bank of Tokyo -- MUFG, Morgan Stanley, JP Morgan, M&T Bank, Sumitomo, Beecher Carlson, Marsh, Aon, 720 Worldwide Inc., Deloitte, KPMG, Mu Sigma Inc., Sath Inc., Ernst & Young, Willis Towers Watson and PwC.
Additional business partners Scotia Bank, PwC, Deloitte and Duff & Phelps were recognized as “Most Improved” because of their significant efforts over the past year to increase female and minority representation on the account teams working with Exelon.
“We are honored to be part of Exelon’s Diversity and Inclusion Program for Suppliers and Service Providers for the 2nd year in a row,” said Nipa Patel, senior vice president of Sath. “Our long-standing partnership with Exelon continues to be strengthened by our collective strategic commitment to diversity and inclusion as an ethos to everything we do.”
Now in its eighth year, the D&I Honor Roll is just one of the numerous ways in which Exelon encourages diverse and inclusive practices. The company was named to DiversityInc’s list of the Top 50 Companies for Diversity and Inclusion, as well as the Human Rights Campaign’s Best Places to Work. Exelon also joined the United Nations HeForShe campaign in 2017, committing $3 million to STEM programs for young women and girls and to improve the company’s retention of women by 2020.
